Real estate tycoon Donald Trump has decided to say,”You’re fired!” to his 11,000-sq ft home in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA and has listed the massive, ocean-view estate for $12 million.

Donald was initially welcomed into the tiny Rancho Palos Verdes community. He purchased 300 acres back in the late 1990s for $27 million and the site was developed to include his 5-bedroom, 9-bathroom mansion, plus a luxury 18-hole golf course and clubhouse.  While the expected city revenue from the golf course was welcomed, the exclusive community faced several uphill battles with Mr. Trump over his decade-long residency. Housing Watch reports that opposition towards a Trump-named street, 12-foot ficus trees and numerous other disagreements eventually led to the real estate mogul suing the LA suburb for $100 million. Longtime residents of Rancho Palos Verdes saw the lawsuit as a reflection of Trump’s outlook that “rules aren’t made for him.”

The grand Mediterranean estate, which served as Trump’s primary residence and his first West Coast development, is “perched high above the rest” and features marble floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, a master bedroom with private patio and fire pit, library, a game room with full-sized bar, wine room, a “chef’s dream” kitchen, infinity pool and unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean and Trump National Golf Course from almost every room.
